About this book

Security is a key part of any well-architected design. With the help of this book, you'll gain both the knowledge and the practical skills to significantly reduce the attack surface of your Azure workloads and protect your organization from constantly evolving threats to public cloud environments like Azure.

This book is a comprehensive security guide for those looking to take the Azure Security Engineer certification exam as well as for those interested in securing their Azure infrastructure. Beyond preparing you for the Azure Security (AZ-500) exam, this book will guide you in securing your Azure environments and workloads using native Azure security capabilities.

Complete with hands-on tutorials, projects, and self-assessment questions, this easy-to-follow guide builds a solid foundation of Azure security. You’ll not only learn about security technologies in Azure but also be able to configure and manage them. Moreover, you’ll develop a clear understanding of how to identify different attack vectors and mitigate risks.

By the end of this book, you'll be well-versed with implementing multi-layered security to protect identities, networks, hosts, containers, databases, and storage in Azure.
